CARIBBEAN QUEEN: BONDI SANDS LIQUID GOLD TANNING OIL REVIEW


elyse-bondisand-tanningoil-review

What will you do this week when you receive that last minute #farshun invitation, but this sketchy weather has left you with a less than solid tan?


Even if your wardrobe is beaming with skin flashing frocks, that blow-dry is on point and your make up application is flawless, without that bronzed glow, you will look more Valley of the Dolls than Victoria’s Secret.

So if you’re in the same boat, and feeling paler than warranted, then my latest discovery will have you fronting up like the amazon bronzed goddess that you are to every (important) invite in town.

Introducing… Bondi Sand’s Liquid Gold Self Tanning Dry Oil.

Here, you have the perfect per-event self-tanning product. I’ve been using this little baby on set with all my models and celebs pre red-carpet and I’m so obsessed. You can literally see the instant bronzing glow and skin plumping benefits develop in less time than it takes to circle a cocktail party.
Taking only two hours to develop (no more need to wake up with self-tan on your sheets!), you can pop it on as you get ready, and when it’s time to slip on your dress, you’re ready to saunter out the door stress (and streak) free.

Its gliding texture nourishes and moisturizes the skin, blending even smoother than a mouse or a cream. The oil texture is terrific for all skin types (including more dehydrated skin) and being a dry oil, there is no mess – only an instant J-lo style glow!

Industry tip: Apply Liquid Gold Self Tanning Dry Oil with a mitt to apply your tan in a big sweeping motion avoiding knees, elbows, feet and the top of your hands, then coming back and applying the excess colour on your mitt from the ajoining limbs. These areas are particularly drier than the rest of your body, so this technique will stop any over-tanning or patchiness.

Want another burst of colour? Layer up 20 minutes after the first application!

The result – plump, nourished, healthy bronzed skin that is up for dancing and other types of all night activity. Oh, and did I mention there is no need to wash it off…?
